Did Mad Sweeney put the coin back in Laura because she didn't give it over willingly?
I’M GOING TO ANSWER THIS REAL QUICK BECAUSE THE LAST EPISODE OF AMERICAN GODS MEANT A LOT TO ME. it’s probably one of my favorite episodes of television that exists.
AHEAD LIES MAJOR AG SPOILERS FOR THE SHOW
what has happened in the show WAS NOT REVEALED IN THE BOOK
so we find out sweeney is the reason laura died. everything has been a setup for shadow up to this point. but this entire episode followed the old tale of a woman who he showed great mercy, and wild peril, towards. but in the end, he showed her the softest, kindest part of a leprechaun and saw her to the afterlife with a gentle hand. she was devoted until the end, and he recognized that with everything he was.
so finding out what wednesday had him do, the coin resonated and screamed to him, and while he could’ve taken it, he then yells to the skies in Old Irish:
Créd as co tarlaid an cac-sa dam?
Nach lór rofhulangas?
Is lór chena, ní am olc! Ní am!
which translates to:
What is it that has brought this shit to me? Is it not enough that I have suffered? It is enough indeed, I’m not evil! I’m not!
he brought laura back to life because he couldn’t give up who he is, which is, in the end
an inherently good being that gives back tenfold of what he receives, which is more often than not a few breadcrumbs from those who still believe in his magic ;n;
oh so when people at tumblr make shitposts about wanting to kiss the sun they’re being “funny” and “quirky” but if i do the same it’s “Betrayal of Messages”, “Undelivery of Words”, “Vile Breeding”, “Conspiracy in Darkness”, and “Unlicensed Love”
Am I the only one who doesn't feel whole RawAir thing ?
I mean these are classical Scandinavian competition like every year for so long. But can it become second 4Hills? I don’t think so. Seems like someone wanted to force it but it doesn’t seem like a tournament at all to me.
Read yesterday that Aleksander Zniszczoł married his girlfriend Magdalena. Funny part is that his wife is sister of Piotr Żyła’s wife, Justyna, and cousin of… Adam Małysz. Guess they take phrase “ski jumping family” very seriously :D
Anyway, congratulations and all the best for the future life for the newly wed couple!
Iceland is a country that even after visiting, I still have difficulty believing exists. Snow-capped volcanoes piercing the skies, centuries-old glaciers covering the landscape like a quilt, dark water the color of ash folding up onto a black sand beach, and don’t even get me started on the sunsets that last for hours.
While incredibly harsh, this land is also graceful, full of quiet moments where all you hear is the tiny whisper as snowflakes fall on your face and melt, all you feel is the gentle spring of the moss that covers everything beneath your feet, and all you see is the Aurora Borealis dancing overhead. These and hundreds of other experiences are what I attempted to capture in this film of one of my favorite countries on Earth.
